Dear cousins: Boran, Emma, Sophia, Almeen, and Noa

As I write this I am sitting in my dorm room a college freshman who cares deeply about our natural environment. For historical reference we are a week away from Joe Bidens Inauguration. I am majoring in sciences and sustainability with a minor in climate change studies. I think a lot about the environment and climate change. I am at a pivotal point in the realm of climate change. My generation has been handed a massive problem and we cannot hand it off to you guys because we are already feeling the affects. This past summer we had forest fires that left the west looking like a post apocalyptic waste land. With my studies I am committing to creating a greener planet for you, me, and every other species. My promise to you is that we can live in a world together where we can be surrounded by the beauty of nature and breath healthy air. You have all grown up in different environments and situations.

Boran, you faced adversity of the highest level at a very young age. When I first met you in America I was impressed by how loving and kind you are. I was also amazed by your knowledge, you could understand difficult topics and take on challenges with a growth mindset.

Emma, I can tell you have great potential, when we ran together I saw commitment and drive. I also see how passionate and caring you can be toward the people around you. These are life skills that will serve you well.

Sophia, when you are passionate about something you take time to understand it and everything about it. This skill will serve you well and allow you to create real change.

Noa and Almeen, at this point in time you are too young for me to see amazing character traits. I do know your parents and I know they will raise you to be great leaders in this world.

I promise to do my part to fight for a healthy earth for you guys to shape.
